Katha (narrative stories)
Mayūraka (मयूरक) is the name of a Kinnara-pair whose story is told in the sixth Ucchvāsa of the Udayasundarīkathā. Mayūraka brought a picture-canvas to Udayasundarī and Tārāvalī and, upon seeing it, Udayasundarī was immediately love-struck.
The Udayasundarīkathā is a Sanskrit epic tale written by Soḍḍhala in the early 11th century, revolving around the Nāga princess Udayasundarī and Malayavāhana (king of Pratiṣṭhāna).Source: Wisdomlib Libary: Kathā
